    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    Most of the time yes, unless there is something added to it like Echinacea. Most cough drops are just a hard candy. If you have problems with your blood sugar then use sugar free. The swallowing is what keeps the cough calm so make sure your drinking a lot of water.

    I would talk to you OB. I read one place its safe and one place that it said to use only under doctor supervision. I hope you feel better soon.
